Breaking Down Five Key Matchups for Packers vs Redskins

A lead built behind an offense that had finally erupted, suddenly seemed precarious as Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers stood in the rain on muddy turf and threatened yet another of his miraculous comebacks.

"Yeah, obviously that's a concern", Rodgers said Wednesday, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky.

Rodgers suffered the injury in Week 1 and wore a large brace in Week 2.

Clearly, the Packers would like for Rodgers to get back to 100 percent as soon as possible.

The weather is crappy, yes, but who wouldn't want to see 2005's first-rounders Alex Smith and Aaron Rodgers go at it, especially since the two have been compared for most of their careers based on draft class?

"I'd love to be better than I was last week as far as health-wise, but there's some factors that are out of my control".

I only made one play for the Packers against the Vikings last week and it was a loser. Green Bay plays a more aggressive defense with more blitzing and man coverage and they aren't going to change that up today because of what the Colts did. RB Aaron Jones could return after missing time with hamstring injury. LB Ryan Kerrigan has four sacks in past four games and three sacks in two games vs. Buffalo is 29th in fantasy points allowed per game against opposing backs, making Cook a tempting play, but don't be surprised if the Vikings play the long-term game and make Murray an intriguing flex option. He was listed as a non-participant in practice on Wednesday, although the Packers didn't actually practice.

The Packers kept Rodgers out of practice all of last week until Saturday.

"The heat and the adrenaline definitely helped, but it's just going to be something you've got to deal with for a while".

Rodgers hopes to continue playing, and that his knee will improve during the season.

Rodgers completed 30-of-42 passes with one touchdown and no interceptions, while often favoring throws from within the pocket. On their opening drive, Smith spotted receiver Paul Richardson Jr. running down the right side and led him with a long pass near the goal line that Richardson dove to catch and then rolled into the end zone for 46-yard touchdown. A strong running game goes a long way, and with the way the defense has been playing, it will be up to the offense to step up and provide some points; Points that were in short supply last week.

Cornerback Kevin King was ruled out Friday with a groin injury.
